Do You Like to Doodle?



I love to doodle.  You can find me doodling when I am talking on the phone, watching TV, listening to the sermon in church, or in a teacher’s meeting.  I don’t save my doodles.  I don’t doodle anything of significance.

I am a very visual person, visual learner.  I sometimes have trouble listening and comprehending.  My mind tends to wander, to go off on its own.  Therefore, I doodle.

As I doodle, the hand moves and helps me to concentrate.  When fellow teachers have seen me doodling in meetings they often think I am goofing off and not listening.  That is incorrect.

Doodling is my technique to stay focused.  Added bonus, I enjoy the feel of the pencil or pen in my hand. So teachers, when you see a student doodling, don’t think the worst.  Of course there is a time and place for doodling. I wouldn’t try it in a parent – teacher conference.

    Doodling helps me concentrate also. How funny! In fact when I was in school, I would pretend to be goofing off just so the teacher would finally call on me to answer a question. Raising my hand wildly and jumping up and down did not do the trick.

    Doodling really helps me to give ideas on what should I draw next when I’m stucked. I draw lines here and there, and looks like something, then I can came up with an imagination <3 I doodle on everywhere when there’s a pen/pencil, even on newspaper. xD
